Norwood Place has a decor that reflects the history of the 1890's cottage tradition with contemporary style: Phillipe Starke chairs sit alongside glittering Regency mirrors whilst a French Armoire accompanies a patisserie sign - converted into a lavish rose gold bed head. Marble top tables, fine quality linen and crystal lamps complete the scene. 

In summer Norwood is abuzz with a lively second- generation Italian scene. People are outdoors soaking up our beautiful warm nights, hanging out in cafes, going to the movies, dining and cycling through the streets. Norwood is steeped in tradition and is a big part of Adelaide's cafe culture providing chic restaurants and groovy bars and eateries. 

At home, you can relax by a gas open fire and enjoy all the creature comforts on the big and very comfortable chesterfield sofa. The evening may provide the perfect opportunity to relax in the spa before heading out to Rundle Street, The Eastend or the Cultural Precinct which is around 1.5 km from the home base. Rundle Street has the nightclubs and a wide range of dining options. It is also the start of the central shopping district. 

Norwood Place is also a great base to explore the many wine regions of South Australia. The Adelaide Hills, Barossa, McLaren Vale or Clare. Penfolds Magill Estate cellar door, home to Grange Hermitage, is around a 20 minute drive. The Adelaide Wine Centre is around 1.5 km away. 

All visitors are encouraged to hire a car for the day and head "down the coast". Around 1 hour you hit the stunning views of McLaren Vale. The undulating landscape is covered in vines and hugged by the hills that seemingly melt away in the distance. Each winery is so unique and offers great character - often it seems more like a bar than a tasting room. Lunch - well that could be in a vineyard or a 10 minute drive to the Coast. Either way, round off the day in the clean waters of the "Gulf". 

Adelaide is home to the Tour Downunder cycling event, Womadelaide and a number of Festivals including the Fringe, Adelaide Festival and Cabaret Festival. All are word class events attracting big crowds to Adelaide. Check out the dates - definately worth a look. 

Norwood Place has everything you need to enjoy your stay with large screen television, dishwasher, queen-sized beds, washer/ dryer, cooker, stove and all the accessories. 

So, if you are into wining, dining, dancing and the finer things of life - head to Adelaide and stay at our place - Norwood Place. We hope to welcome you soon!

We have just spent a week at Norwood place and can highly recommend this accommodation. Beautifully restored and decorated , comfortable beds, lots of surprise additions including a lovely bottle of wine in the fridge along with Timtam's, how great is that! Cottage is 30 min walk into the city and a 5min walk to The Norwood parade which has a plethora of eating establishments and interesting shops. Thank you Martin for making us feel most welcome. We will be back Donna and John. Dec 2018

"Wonderful!" This fabulous little cottage is ideal for a stay in Adelaide. It's in a very desirable location, walking distance to good shops, bars and restaurants and only a short drive from the city and airport. Wine regions of McLaren Vale and Barossa are easily accessible and owner Marty had good recommendations for tours and visits. The cottage itself is very charming with quality decor, comfortable beds and luxury towels and bedding. Martin was an excellent host and easily contacted if needed during our stay. We loved it here, 100% recommendation and we hope to be back. Thanks Martin!

"Fabulous place to stay in Norwood" Close to the CBD and the Adelaide Hills, this house had everything we needed for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Beds are very comfortable and kitchen is well equipped. Also within walking distance of a good variety of local shops and restaurants. Best of all is Martin the owner - hospitable and friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend this as a place to stay in Adelaide!



The welcome starts at the front door, with precise pre-booking information and helpful local tips awaiting the guests. Spotlessly clean and comfortable, our stay was made very pleasant by the facilities and proximity to shopping, restaurants and points of interest.
